“In this excellent, insightful memoir, comedian turned senator Franken recalls his unlikely path to public service…Franken is quite a raconteur, and he tells the story of his remarkable life and times with a sense of humor that is always irreverent and often self-deprecating.”―Publishers Weekly
“This is a great book about politics. No joke…Compulsively readable [with] laugh-out-loud lines in every chapter.”―Booklist Starred Review
